As a leader, you must be willing to listen and be present in the moment as people share their heart with you.
Whenever one is giving advice or counsel, it is important to put oneself in the shoe of the other party. This is what Jesus did. When God needed to execute the plan of salvation, Jesus stepped in. He did not stay back in heaven barking commands at human beings and expecting us to obey. Rather he came down from glory and dwelt with men. He ate like we did, slept like we did, and cried like we did. He was 100% human, yet he was 100% God. He became like us so that he could be in touch with our own realities.
This is why the scripture says, “For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin” (Heb. 4:15, KJV). This means that Jesus knows exactly how we feel whenever we call on him. This is because he also experienced the same challenges while he was on earth. We can be sure that God understands us now more than ever. As a matter of fact, Jesus still stands daily to make intercession for the saints. We can be sure that since he is our Advocate, our matters can be properly handled before the throne of God.
Jesus knew about our common challenges. He felt the things we felt too. When people were sorrowful, he cried. Before Lazarus died, Jesus was called and informed about the health of Lazarus. He delayed in his coming and only came into town days after the death of Lazarus. People were still weeping and consoling Mary and Martha when Jesus arrived.
When Jesus was taken to the tomb of Lazarus, he wept. It was afterward that he called Lazarus back to life. Jesus did not only come to show how powerful he was. He revealed his humanity and his affection. Jesus was empathetic. He understood the feelings of the people and responded accordingly.
